Add the Jaguars to the list of teams interested in Eric Bieniemy.

Josina Anderson reported on Tuesday morning that Jacksonville is in the process of scheduling an interview with the Chiefs offensive coordinator.

That interview would have to be conducted virtually with the protocols put in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic — as would a second interview as long as the Chiefs are alive in the postseason.

Bieniemy is one of the hottest coaching candidates of this cycle, with the Falcons, Lions, Chargers, and Jets also at least requesting to interview him.

The Jaguars have reported interest or scheduled interviews with former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, Titans offensive coordinator Arthur Smith, and Falcons interim head coach Raheem Morris.

  1. At this point, everybody HAS to schedule an appointment with Bienemy to prevent looking like a doofus. The backlash for not interviewing him would be tremenendous. Now that guy is actually worth $12 M per year.

  2. Eric is not even the primary signal caller for the offense, Andy Reid is. When Eric did call plays as a college OC, he and the HC got fired.

  3. This team is appropriately prepared to build and compete. 1st Draft pick 2021, large salary cap space and ownership that doesn’t meddle (looking at you Jerruh).

    Fresh leadership with a capable, offensively oriented head coach (E.B.) to attract some quality free agents in a division where they hold a last place schedule is a recipe for marked improvement.

    Good Luck Eric Bieniemy! We Chiefs fans wish you well.

  4. I don’t think he gets enough credit on here for what he actual does in the offense and behind the scenes. How much has he picked up from Reid is the real question. If he doesn’t get hired this year he must be really be poor at interviews. Jags or chargers are both desirable locations I would think but on the other hand both owners are goobers.
